‘Shameless’ US Season 4, Episode 12: ‘Lazarus’

408_4_0_ph-shoot002_800x600Shameless” U.S. season 4, episode 12: “Lazarus” airs tonight on Showtime.

In this week’s episode, Sheila fights for custody of the Native American kids and clashes with Sammi about where they will all live once Frank is released. Lip catches up on bills with the money he got from Amanda’s parents. Fiona, meanwhile, passes a drug test, gets sprung from jail and lands a job at Patsy’s Pies with the help of her parole officer. Also, a more cognizant Frank begins to feel like his old, troubled self.

The series meets the fabulously dysfunctional Gallagher family. Dad’s a drunk, Mom split long ago, and eldest daughter Fiona tries to hold the family together. Eldest son Philip (Lip) trades his physics tutoring skills for sexual favors from neighborhood girls. Middle son Ian is gay. Youngest daughter Debbie is stealing money from her UNICEF collection. Ten-year-old Carl is a budding sociopath and an arsonist, and toddler Liam is – well, he might actually be Black, but nobody has a clue how.

The series stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Justin Chatwin, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey and Emma Kenney.

“Shameless” season 4, episode 12 airs April 6, at 9 p.m. on Showtime.

One thought on “‘Shameless’ US Season 4, Episode 12: ‘Lazarus’

  1. Finally caught up on my DVR'ing. I have to say my first reaction is that this was my favorite season finale of Shameless so far, even if season 4 wasn't my favorite season.

    I really hope they find a new exciting direction to take Lip in the next season, and not just a repeat of his past but with a different girlfriend. I know that repeating a lot of destructive behavior and that cycle is part of the show's deeper narrative, but still, I am hoping they can surprise us here.

    One last note, I loved that they used the song “Beacon” by Fellow Bohemian was in the scene where Lip gets all the kids packed into Amanda’s car so that they can get to school. Really big fan of that band and song, who I actually first discovered from this show a few seasons ago.
